When you first set up your Lexmark X4550 printer, you have the opportunity to create a PIN you can use to access the administrative functions of the unit. If you later want to get rid of that PIN setting, you can go back and do a cold reset on the X4550. Doing a cold reset on the printer sets it back to its original settings, allowing you to either reestablish the PIN or leave it blank.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Power the Lexmark X4550 off and wait for it to shut down. Press the "Settings" button on the control panel and hold it down.

  2. 2

    Hold the "Settings" button while powering the printer on. Watch for the power light to start blinking.

  3. 3

    Press the button that looks like a check mark. Hold that button down until the power light comes on steady. The printer settings are now reset.
